Handicap Accessibility:  Old Tucson is handicapped accessible throughout most of the park. Many guests come in wheelchairs, and we have a limited number of wheelchairs available for use on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. The streets are dirt, with areas of soft sand for the stunt show, but most is hard-packed. We urge people in wheelchairs to have someone accompany them to help with some of the longer distances between attractions.
